Rebuild Process


Our Rebuild Process

When a grinder supervisor notices increasing production bottlenecks or rising maintenance costs, their first question is likely about the operational efficiency of the grinder. CNC grinders are complex machines, and diagnosing a problem requires specialized training. At Seminole Machinery, we know grinders inside and out. Diagnosing, repairing and rebuilding grinders and components has been our passion for over 40 years.

CNC grinders can malfunction in various ways. Grinders may start consuming excessive energy or use more lubricant than necessary, which can create unnecessarily high cycle times or product irregularities. Most malfunctions can be remedied with a CNC grinder rebuild. We know a good rebuild can cost a fraction of a replacement machine and provide most of the benefits.

Not only can you see, feel and hear evidence of the superior operation afforded by a rebuild; it may not be long before you begin to realize the secondary benefits, such as improved productivity and less downtime for maintenance. If your CNC grinder consistently malfunctions, a grinder repair or rebuild may be the best solution. Enlisting a qualified CNC grinder expert is important. When you choose Seminole Machinery, the rebuild process is detailed and comprehensive, beginning with the evaluation.

Evaluation

Our skilled customer service team collects information about the problems that led to the grinder rebuild. We can help isolate the sources of the problem and begin compiling historical information pertinent to the rebuild process. Data on the machine’s original design, workload, and productivity can provide important direction.

Our machine specialists assess your operational goals and determine which areas to prioritize. Your performance expectations drive the process. Our job is to develop creative solutions for your grinder problems and use the latest technologies to return your machine to its optimum level of functioning.

Analysis

Your CNC grinder rebuild begins with an in-depth analysis, including documenting the status of the following systems:

  • Hydraulics and pneumatics
  • Grinding and stock-removal mechanisms
  • Computing components and displays
  • Coolant delivery system and lubricant nozzle functioning
  • Tooling components and mechanisms
  • Electrical and voltage efficiency

During the analysis, Seminole machine specialists strip your CNC grinder down to its most basic elements and carefully clean every surface. Finally, the components are refinished and repainted for added protection from wear and tear.

Repair and Replacement

A successful grinder rebuild requires a trained eye to discern which components can be reused and which are compromised and needing replacement. Wherever possible, our technicians will clean and reuse functional, undamaged parts.

Reassembly

When each component of your CNC grinder has been inspected and cleaned, we meticulously reassemble each section of the machine using existing and replacement parts. Our extensive in-house inventory of new and used grinder parts allows us to keep our prices down and easily replace damaged components with functional ones.

Once the grinder is reassembled, our technicians test every system to ensure maximum performance. The customer may be involved in this part of the grinder rebuild. We want your new machine to meet not only your specifications but also your expectations.
